Ao Nang Beach Krabi Mid-1980s

Recommended Posts

Here's some scenes from Ao Nang Beach taken in the mid-1980s. There wasn't much to Ao Nang back then, the road facing the beach originally had a string of little wooden bungalow style resorts and these were beginning to go. Some concrete minimarts and shops were getting built. A couple of bars had sprung up but didn't really have gals available.

 

I remember the very first farang type bar that opened, some Thais from outside Krabi and they had a dog. I went there a few times and later on I talking with a local Thai man and he was pissed off that these outsiders had brought a dog into a muslim village, which is what Ao Nang still was at that time.

 

It was also walking past this same bar in the mid-1980s that I was first called "Papa" by the Thai gals. Before that day as I walked past bars anywhere in Thailand gals would call out "Hello handsum man" or "Hello sexy man" then this one day in Ao Nang some bitch called out "Hello Papa". I think every BG in Thailand must have heard her because from that day on I began hearing "Hello Papa" everywhere I went.

I remember it as a bit more developed in the early '90s. It is not too far from where I am now. Perhaps it is time for a revisit.

The best Thai seafood restaurant I ever been to in my life was at Ao Nang. It's long gone now, it was away from the beach and up one of those side roads. It was actually a small seafood market, just a concrete floor, tin roof, wood sides, they had those big plastic boxes with seafood on ice. You had to go there during the day and select what you wanted. Then go back for dinner at 6 or 7 PM and sit on plastic chairs and folding tables and the women bring out all the stuff you'd paid for all deliciously cooked - fish, prawns, shellfish, everything, all dirt cheap and plenty of beer at minimart prices.

Ao Nang and the area is simply gorgeous. I took my then Thai girlfriend now wife there on a trip back in 2006, a magic romantic place well worth a visit.

 

I do recall the Thai airways plane having a very very rough landing in a severe rainstorm (April)

Hi Biffa. I went there countless times in the 1980s-1990s but not much this century. I last at Krabi town - Ao nang - Railay about 3-4 years back when I did a motoring trip with my missis. Yes, I saw big changes but it still seemed like a good place. WTF people would want to eat McDonalds in a place like Krabi is beyond me. We used to sit in seaside restaurants dining on tom yum and fried fish and steamed crabs with lots of cold beer. That was one of the reasons we went to Krabi.

Spent a few weeks there over Christmas and new year, and going back in June.

 

There are 2 main nightlife spots.

One is a small dead end Soi opposite McDonalds. This is about 200 meters long and has about 20 bars and is similar to soi 7 or soi 8 in Pattaya.

The second one is at the back of the main beach road behind Burger King. It is a 3 storey complex with a couple of GoGo and some other bars with live music and some very nice girls. It is a bit like a very small Nana Plaza

 

There are also some very nice little short Soi with no tarmac but nice bars with pool and huge TVs if you just want ti chill and chat.

If it flies, floats or fucks - it will be cheaper to rent !
